Bought the Old Town three years ago, and haven't regreted it a bit. It is indeed a bit unstable when empty, and heavy for anything but a short portage. But once I load this baby with 300 lbs of gear and another human, it is virtually unsinkable. In fact, the heavier configuration seems to increase stability, dampering the initial instability displayed when totally empty. Turning is a breeze, but some lead time is required. She's got a few battle scars from submerged rock encounters in class II and III rapids, but despite some brutal head on collisions, she's never gone over and remains structually solid. Handles lakes and stream with ease, though a little wobbly for lake fishing -- recommend ballast or pontoons for this activity, especially if kids or dogs are involved.
